Pattern Description:

This barn is so fun to knit! The red part of the barn is knit as one piece and seamed at the corners. Felt doors and windows are sewn on with embroidery floss. (I love layering materials!) The roof is knit separately and sewn on the top. There are detailed photo instructions in the pattern to walk you through all the steps!

For a special, memorable gift knit up this cute red barn and give it to a new baby or young child...along with a farm themed book.

The Big Red Barn knitting pattern is a tribute to the many fun farm themed children's books....especially "Big Red Barn" by Margaret Wise Brown. (The knitted barn is almost exactly the same height as the Big Red Barn board book.)

SKILL LEVEL: Easy/Intermediate. This pattern is tutorial style and includes LOTS of photos with step-by-step instructions.
